Breaks in the fall and spring term provide opportunities for Career Weeks. During this time off from class, students focus on professional development and trek around the globe to explore career opportunities. Students focus on energy and international development in Washington, D.C., discuss finance on Wall Street, meet with consumer product and consulting executives along the Northeast Corridor, and visit Silicon Valley during CalTrek.
Student clubs and the MBA Career Center organize the treks to promote interaction with alumni and important business leaders in each location. Recent international treks have extended this networking opportunity to Dubai, Hong Kong, and Madrid.
In addition to these experiences, students can access customized career services from the MBA Career Center year-round. Most students choose to spend their summer in internships, gaining weeks of hands-on experience that further focuses their studies in the second year.
